Official Wyoming State Flag 1917 – Present

The Wyoming State Bison Flag design was adopted by the state legislature and signed into law on January 31st, 1917. The design consists of a bison silhouette with the Wyoming state seal in the center. The colors are the same as the United States flag with the red representing the native American population as well as the blood that was shed by the early pioneers who settled the land. The blue symbolizes justice and fidelity and is also the color of the sky and distant mountains, while the white is for purity and uprightness. The bison is represented as the species once dominated the land while the seal on the animal suggests the custom of branding livestock. The flag was designed by 24-year-old Verna Keays, a recent graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her design was selected from a total of 37 submissions to a contest sponsored by the Wyoming DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution). The contest was meant to encourage public participation in the adoption of a state flag and a $20 prize was awarded to the winner. The original design showed the buffalo facing towards the fly-end to symbolize the animals running free across the plains. As suggested by University of Wyoming professor Grace Raymond Hebard, the silhouette was reversed to face the hoist end because it made the artwork more balanced and it is typical for bison to face the wind during the harsh winter weather. Although this change was never officially adopted by the legislature, all Wyoming state flags, starting from the first production, are made with the animal facing the hoist.

Nylon is a durable, lightweight material that will easily fly in a light breeze and features bright, rich colors. The artwork is visible on both sides of the flag and the lettering reads correctly from one side only.
